As CEO of The Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center (CHEC), I invite you to participate in some of our hands-on educational experiences on water and land at our two locations, Alligator Creek Preserve in Punta Gorda and Cedar Point Park in Englewood. We have activities and programs for all ages.

Join us for hiking our trails at your leisure, guided hikes with one of our Naturalists, photography exhibits, a unique gift shop, movie programs with discussions, focused lectures by Florida Master Naturalists, scientists, and historians, public wading sea grass adventures in our estuaries, fishing clinics, nature camps for school children, and a native plant nursery.

We would enjoy meeting with you about becoming one of our valued volunteers or members, too! Members receive special “gifts” and benefits, along with knowing they are supporting field trips for school children and our other programs and services.
